Just like Thomas, the Gladers don't know why or how they got to the Glade. All they know is that every morning the stone doors to the maze that surrounds them have opened. Every night they've closed tight. And every 30 days a new boy has been delivered in the lift.
Thomas was expected. But the next day, a girl is sent up - the first girl to ever arrive in the Glade. And more surprising yet is the message she delivers.
Thomas might be more important than he could ever guess. If only he could unlock the dark secrets buried within his mind.

i listened to this book mostly during my runs. Found i enjoyed that a lot. Narrator was good, gave good distinct accents and variety of voices for each character. I will get the second book.
No. While I haven't seen the movie yet, I assume that this is one of those rare exceptions where the movie will be better than the book. It's an hour long story packed into a 10 hour book. Every conversation goes something like this, "I have something to tell you." "What is it?" "It's hard for me to say." "Just tell me!" "I'm going to, but I need you to listen." "I'm listening." "Stop interrupting me." "Just tell me!" and on, and on, and on...
First and last James Dashner. I know he writes for kids, but I still expected more given the success of this book...
I probably would listen to Mark again. While he sounded a bit robotic at times, I hate to judge his reading based on this book.
This is a good book. The reader isn't my favorite (that title belongs to Ms. Reading), but he does an excellent job voicing the characters. I can't wait to start the second book.
Literally on the edge of my seat! Loved it!
Chuck- his grown up innocence was almost heartbreaking
